Massive Kansas sinkhole attracts tourists like a mini Grand Canyon
A massive sinkhole has opened in a Kansas field, drawing tourists for an ill-advised look into the void.
A Wallace County rancher found the sinkhole on Aug. 1 on land about 20 miles from the Kansas-Colorado border. The hole is about 90 feet deep and 200 to 300 feet wide.
Landowner Dalton Hoss said his brother discovered the crater-like pit while surveying pastureland.
“He called me up, and his voice was quaking,” Hoss told KWCH 12. “He said, ‘You’ll never believe what I just seen.’”
Wallace County Sheriff Larry Sanders said the sinkhole appeared out of nowhere.
“Man had nothing to do with this,” Sander said. “This is a God thing. There’s no oil well around here, there are no irrigation wells anywhere near. This is something that just happened.”
